Apartment Tour: Our Humble Place

Not many people get to see our place.  Partly because we are so far away from family and friends, and partly because we don't invite people over than often.  It's a small place, but we got it for a great price and works great for our situation now.

Anyways we will take a quick tour of the place just so you can get an idea of what kind of place we live in and our decorating style.  It is also a nice way for me to remember the place, since it is our first place together and we will be moving out soon.

Here is the view from the front of the building.  I pretty much demanded a first floor apartment after walking up tons of steps in my previous place.  It seriously could not be any easier, as our place is right there when you walk in the front door.  We even got pretty sweet parking place right by the door.  You can see a little of my car on the right.

When you walk through the front door this is the view you get.  Our living room is right there in the front and the dining area is in the back


Here is another view of the living room from the other side.


Right off of the living room is a small storage closet and laundry room.  It has been great for us!  We got a great deal on a barely used washer and dryer from a family friend, which means no more laundromats for us!



Not the prettiest picture of the house, but is great to have the storage space for our coats and recycling!

You got to see some of the pictures of our kitchen before, but here are some better ones.




And here is our dirty little secret of the kitchen.  We have no storage and too much stuff, so we stick all the stuff we don't use very often above the cabinet.  Most of the fun stuff we got from the wedding are up there like cake domes, margarita classes, and serving trays.  Not everything fit.  We have stuff in the extra room.  I can't wait to move.  Number one on my must have list is a bigger kitchen!

Still no chairs for the dining table.  The hubby found some really great ones sitting out by the dumpster (people get rid of a lot of nice things around here and we aren't above getting free stuff) but by the time he got the car someone was already loading them into their truck.  But I am okay with that since we have gone this long already.

This is the view out the back door.  We have a small concrete patio that we don't really use, except as a place to keep the grill.  It can be a very pretty view as seen below, but we can get tons of geese which are very annoying.  They leave all kinds of nastiness everywhere and like to get it on while I am trying to sleep.  At some point I think we counted over 50 geese in the pond at one time.


I still have other pictures of the other side of the apartment but I think I will save those for another post!  

Happy Monday Everyone! Have a great week!
